2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
While adding fruit to a wheat beer always sounds like a great idea it never seems to work out well. This one didnít either. There was plenty of raspberry aromas and flavors to it. They seemed authentic rather than canned, too. Many brewers are making this mixture. Hopefully the trend does not continue.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Had to try it - Delafield location. Atrractive honey color. Not heady, little aroma. Unusually strong fresh raspberry flavor (batch peculiarity most likely), too short of a finish even for a weiss. Difficult to pair with food.

Draught at the brewpub (Downtown Milwaukee location). Slightly hazy reddish-purple color with thin white head that didnít leave any lace. Aroma and flavor were similar...cloying raspberry. Very sweet on the tongue. Reminded me of soda more than beer.

Sample at Delafild. Amber/orange body. Mild berry beer. Had a mild raspberry aroma and flavor. Not as tart as most berry beers are.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cloudy red pour with a little white head. Very sweet aroma.. primarily of raspberries and a little wheat. Light and watery on the palate. Flavor was of raspberries, but not fresh ones... more of sugary raspberry concentrate. A bit tart on the finish. Better than expected, but definitely nothing special going on here.

reddish in color w/ no head. Smells of mild raspberries. Palate is light. Flavor is a tart lightly sweetened raspberry and not much else. I didnít like this one much at all.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours to a hazy red/gold body with a thin white head. The aroma is fresh raspberries. Light wheat. The flavor is raspberries that have been thinned down with wheat. Not really powerful. The palate is thin and watery. Iím not really a fan as they did nothing special.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Had this on tap at the brewery. Poured pinkish into my sampler glass. Aroma was light but fruity and somewhat plastic. The flavor was nice. Semi-Sweet with a mild tartness that allowed it to finish crisper than I expected.

On tap at the Water Street in Delafield location. Poured a medium reddish amber color (I couldnít quite finger the color) with a smaller sized head. Served with a slice of lemon! Stronger raspberry aromas. Tastes of lighter raspberries and light wheat. Some lemons (which I attribute to the lemon slice) as well. Fizzy body.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2005 On tap at their downtown Milwaukee location. Bright orange pour, slight, white head. Fruity aroma of raspberries which is slightly artifical. Flavor has the same raspberry nature to it - which is again artificial to some degree, but tasty and refereshing as an after dinner drink. Mouthfeel has some spritziness to it. Decent.
